Any romaine lettuce being sold now is nearly certainly not from the Yuma, Arizona region and so unlikely to carry the E. coli bacteria that's been making people sick, the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention says.
Twenty-three more illnesses caused by an E. coli outbreak tied to tainted romaine lettuce were reported by USA health officials on Wednesday.
Twenty-three more people fell ill since the last update on May 9, bringing the total to 172 people from 32 states, the Centers for Disease Control and prevention (CDC) said on Wednesday.
Health officials say it's safe again to eat romaine lettuce.
Romaine lettuce has a shelf life of about 21 days. Illnesses started on dates ranging from March 13, 2018, to April 25, 2018. People who got sick range from 1 to 88 years, with a median age of 29. The good news is that any lettuce from the Yuma, Arizona, region, where the toxic lettuce was thought to come from, is most likely no longer for sale in stores. According to the CDC, 20 victims had developed the dreaded hemolytic uremic syndrome, a severe effect of E. coli infections that targets the kidneys.
According to the CDC, it takes about two to three weeks from when a person becomes ill due to an E. coli infection until the illness is reported.
The strain of E. coli involved produces the Shiga-toxin, a powerful chemical listed as a potential bioterrorism agent by the Department of Homeland Security, and ingesting it led to kidney failure for more than a dozen Americans. The numbers include the Nebraska case. The bacteria also resulted in one death case.
